INFOGRAPHIC: The Global State of the Games Media

Print is a dying medium, right?

Well, try telling that to the almost 230,000 people that read Moshi Monsters every month, or Game Informer’s ludicrous 7.5m subscribers (8.16m readers in total).

Talk of Nintendo Power’s impending closure may imply that the magazine is struggling, but it still retains 475,000 loyal readers.

The highly influential Edge is dwarfed by the global rivals depicted here, but is most certainly not the smallest games magazine in the world.

The strength of PC gaming in Germany means PC-focused Gamestar is one of the world’s biggest PC mags.
